Make Sure You Really Have a Blog

In Blogging by Chuck

I just can’t say this any better than Dean Froslie did at Sundog. Saying you’ve got a blog when you really don’t is just one of my pet peeves. It fosters misunderstanding at best.

In recent months, I’ve noticed a few instances of “blogs” that are simply long pages of text. (A favorite sports talk show host is one example.) There’s no way to comment, no way to receive posts by RSS or e-mail, no categorization, and no way to link directly to a post. The content likely gets read, but it requires more reader effort and lacks the conversation and community-building.
